I am an open minded, friendly, multicultural experienced tutor of Japanese languages.
I can personalize lessons at your request from using basic GENKI textbook or Japanese for busy people to free conversation upon your advance request. Please let me know what your purpose and goal. I will do my best to help you to achieve your goal. (Hopefully with a lot of fun.)
I can also teach you Japanese culture such as Origami, cooking and calligraphy. I love Japanese history and would like to share richness of Japanese culture.

Private Japanese Teacher

I will listen to you as carefully as possible to make the lesson meaningful. What are you interested in about Japan? History, travel, movie, music, anime, traditional entertainment, food or else? Think of learning not Japanese, but what you love through Japanese because what you love motivates you for learning the most.

One of my typical lesson styles is a situational dialogue. Let's have fun.

I teach at my place or a coffee shop if you would like to, or online.

Akira is a great teacher. I really appreciate that he explains everything in depth when I don’t understand the grammar. I also appreciate that he corrects me every time I mispronounce something.

Yoshi is a great instructor. Our 12 year old daughter is very into anime and wanted to learn Japanese. She was not prepared for the amount time this would take to learn. Yoshi was patient with her and she very much enjoyed the lesson that included her writing the names of her favorite anime characters.
William R.
So far I've had 5 lessons with Oyamada Sensei, and reading Japanese has already become much easier. We do NHK easy news, and I practice on my own and have gotten much faster at it. Looking forward to keeping going with them. Highly recommend!

Online Japanese Teacher

Hi, I first taught Japanese to my friends at college in 2002 and I’ve always enjoyed teaching and interacting with students even though I didn’t expect it to become my career then. I have taught adults including senior citizens, college, high school and middle school students, and young children. Teaching Japanese to American military personnel and spouses who were stationed in Japan was the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. They truly needed the language skills to live in Japan, and they really appreciated that they were able to learn survival Japanese that’s instantly useful out in town.

I grew up in Japan and came to US to go to college. When I was a college student, I taught Japanese and English to middle and high school students during summer back in Japan. I have a Master of Education in TESL. I teach all levels including those who are starting out and also want to improve their fluency and understand the culture and history too!
I’m looking forward to working with ...
